Zuckerberg To Teach 10 Million Kids 0-Based Counting

Counting should be consistent with the number line. The number line starts at zero: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Number_line Why confuse the kids by starting at 1 in Kindergarten? Only to have to teach them zero the next year when you start showing them number lines? I'm teaching my daughter to always start with zero.

NC School District Recalls Its Amplify Tablets After 10% Break In Under a Month

NeroTransmitter I'm not sure I understand the premise (177 comments)

It would be one thing if a tablet was capable of replacing a child's textbooks, but they aren't, so what's the point? It's not a magic device, it requires this thing called software. The tablet in and of itself is better suited for wasting time on the interwebs and playing 'touch' games. These ijits bought fragile paper weights... Stupid sexy tablets!

Nearly 150 Companies Show Interest in the Tech Love Boat

NeroTransmitter Can't find anything in the FAQs (332 comments)

About how a worker gets from say Bangladesh to the BlueMySeed boat. I imagine they will have to have a Visa to fly into the San Francisco International Airport. Perhaps they will be recruiting really well swimming candidates?

NeroTransmitter It's a Thumb Trap (391 comments)

The idea is that you appear anonymous, but that appearance of annonimity is actually what keeps anyone from knowing if anyone in the company is contributing. Your safety is guaranteed thanks to the thumb trap.
